Home Office in a Tiny Green YardPod

The shedworking movement is growing with folks nixing the daily commute by carving out a little extra space at home.  One way to do this is with a YardPod, which is fabricated in a solar-powered factory in Rohnert Park, California.  YardPods are framed in light-gauge, recycled-content steel, insulated with recycled-content, natural cotton fiber, and covered with a cool roof.  Flooring can be either bamboo or cork.  A 10’x12′ DIY model starts at $2,100, while a complete kit starts at $11,000, not including tax or delivery.
